For My Midwestern Friends: "June Gloom"

June Gloom (or May Gray) is one of San Diego's least promoted weather phenomenons.

As I understand it, there are weather conditions possibly year round, but common in May and June that create a fairly thick "marine layer" which causes clouds and fog in much of Metro San Diego (and I'm sure other similarly positioned parts of the West Coast). Often this only impacts coastal and near coastal areas around here.

But since last Wednesday or Thursday, we've had an unusually thick layer which has led to several days completely overcast all of the way to the mountains, and even some mist and rain -- basically we got a taste of Seattle weather for a few days.

But, when I walked out at 11:00 today, the sun was unexpected shining with only a few clouds in the sky -- the weather that San Diego uses for all of its post cards and tourist ads.
